I cannot tell if said cat is a meme without making it a meme? :)

Physics memes:
- Schrodinger’s cat

vs.

Sci-fi memes (?):
- parallel universes
- wormholes to other places/dimensions
- anti-gravity

It’s just a random, silly ideal.
You can’t cut something into 0 pieces, can you?
It’s a simple joke spawning from a random ideal.

Oh, yeah, they chose that one because it is something that everyone can recognize. There are plenty of things you can’t do in math, but that is the most well known.

By the way, what math class are you taking, Griff?
Bonus points to anyone who can give me the zeroes of this equation.

3X^2-4X+6

@Griff:
Mathematics.

@Thread:
I wouldn’t say it’s a meme at this point in time. Let me do some more research.
Also, are there any particular reasons why you would consider this a meme? Links? Derivatives?

Also, the derivatives must originate from the Internet.

I know many anime series reference Schrodinger’s cat for some reason. I think it is more of a running physic’s joke than a meme.

@Blah
A meme, but not an internet meme.
In the end, no point in the entry.
